The more online players opt for accessing gaming sites via mobile devices rather than desktops, the bigger is the choice of mobile payment options they can use.
Zimpler is a kind of mobile wallet that not only enables fast and simple online transactions but also helps clients gain better control of their spending. A mobile phone is all one needs to top up accounts, make in-app purchases, buy games and pay for streaming services.
This young fintech company currently has more than 112,000 individual users and offers its services in Sweden, Finland, Germany and the UK.
Zimpler is a Swedish mobile payment service provider active since 2012 and licensed in the UK by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA). They used to operate under the name of PugglePay until the relaunch which took place four years later.
Apart from “being a really nice company”, the founder’s goal was to simplify mobile payments by collecting the client’s card, bank and bill payments in one location and allowing them to connect using their phone number.
Zimpler looks after your financial well-being by allowing you to choose how much cash you’d like to spend using this service each month. Once set, your spending budget can be altered, but having to wait for 7 days before the higher one gets activated protects you from making an impulse decision and gambling away more than originally planned.
Industry-standard 256-bit SSL encryption applied to every Zimpler transactions keeps all sensitive information out of hackers’ reach. Each transactions has to be approved by an SMS code and that adds another layer of security. Users can get in touch with live customer service via Facebook messenger, by sending an email or giving the team a call. Phone will be answered Monday through to Friday between 10:00 and 17:00 CET.
Your Zimpler account is automatically created the first time this payment method is used for making an online purchase.
Sign in via your mobile phone and enter your number which the provider will use to send an SMS with the verification code. Enter the code and choose one of supported payment methods for the transaction to go through and your Zimpler account to be activated. You’ll be signing in the same way for all following purchases, with a new verification code sent each time.
Zimpler bills can be paid by any card that bears Visa or MasterCard logo, via Swish or directly through your bank. If you choose the latter, bills are sent to your Zimpler account and will also show up in your inbox.
The system will be assessing your credit limit after each purchase. If bills are paid in time, your credit limit will increase, but if you’re late, Zimpler will decrease the limit or even remove it entirely. Clients are given 14 days to pay due invoices.
Using a credit card won't cost them anything, but if they choose to pay through a bank, the provider will charge a fee dependent on the size of their deposit. Fine for being late consists of a fixed €6 fee and 8% of the amount owed.
Zimpler is currently available only as a deposit option to gamble online, playing slots or games, so be prepared to use an alternative method if you’re lucky enough to generate profits while playing your favourite casino games.
Funding of a casino account functions pretty much as explained above: select Zimpler from the list of available payment options and type in the amount you wish to deposit. You’ll then be prompted to enter your phone number and seconds later receive the 4-digit verification code. Use it to confirm the payment and the cash will instantly materialise in your casino account.
Most online casinos will not charge any fees for Zimpler deposits, nor will penalise players by withholding their welcome offer like they sometimes do with those using eWallets.
Zimpler is a an easy-to-use mobile payment solution which stores all necessary payment details in one place. There are no apps to download and no preregistration to go through before one can make their very first Zimpler payment. Rather than having to memorise PIN codes and/or passwords, you only need to remember your mobile phone number. The ability to save credit card details on your Zimpler account saves you from having to type in the same information every time you want to make a deposit. Being regulated by the FCA means proper security measures are in place and one doesn’t have to fear fraud and identity theft. Deposits are executed instantly, and though one can’t currently use Zimpler for withdrawals, there is a rumour the company is planning to add this feature later on. They also have expansion plans, which is good news since the service is at this point available in a few countries only.
